Become the Next Shakespeare Through Meditation

A really spiritual person will live life as an art, will create a deep harmony between the body and the consciousness. And this is the greatest art there is. His life will be a joy to see. And he will be fragrant, for the sheer reason that there is no split in his being. The very unity makes him organic; the wound of division is healed.” – Osho

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.


What is Meditation To Kevy Michaels? – By Kevy Michaels

I am only joking about becoming Shakespeare, but I wanted to draw your attention to the power of regularly meditating.  Apparently, I did.

I practice meditation passionately, as I have been meditating regularly for over 20 years.

It’s biggest benefit in my life is that it gives me clarity and it elevates me, the latter of which is not very easy to explain, but I will attempt. 

Meditation gives me the ability to interact with the physical world, but in a metaphysical way.  It gives another dimension to my senses, in it’s truest, non-manipulated form.  Meditation allows me to the feel energy, of people, nature, and the air even, from the perspective of my soul, not from the object’s perspective. 

Its power in my life is hinted to in the tag line of this blog, Transformed By Meeting That Which I’m Not.  Meditation transforms my experiences from being externally driven, to being internally guided.  It takes me to the field of Pure Potentiality, chapter one in Deepak Chopra’s, 7 Laws of Spiritual Success, a book changed my life’s direction, many years ago.  I am so passionate about it, that I reread it regularly, and have given copies of it to friends, family and strangers in many parts of the world. 

I will feature posts on other chapters in the future.  

In the field of Pure Potentiality is where Divinity, Creativity, Healing, Nature, and God’s energy resides.  It’s a sacred layer of existence, on top of physical existence.  Meditation makes this energy in all things, accessible, in addition to its physical offerings. 

I have found profound power in meditation because it separates me from myself, my ego, and from the character of who I am to the world.  It takes me to my spiritual essence, therefore I see my spirit interacting with life, as opposed to my ego-self having the experience.  It is quite powerful and its benefits have manifested in many ways in my life.  Here are a couple examples.

It made me more creative, though I never thought that I was.  I can clearly remember when I would write songs (such as the one below) where the lyrics, rhythm, and sound would come to me vividly.  Since I am not a musician, I would ask a close friend, who sang and played guitar, to give the song chords.  Together, we would delight others, performing these songs (and poems) at the Unity church, schools, charity events, nursing homes, and for family and friends.  I would eventually write over 200 songs, over 600 poems, and 100’s more finished and unfinished works.  There were days where I would get what seemed like cosmic inspiration, writing over 10 songs and poems, in one day. 

Being in the field of Pure Potentiality, through meditation, revealed that I had these unbeknownst gifts. 

It happened again in the early 2000’s, with Love Electra.  Love Electra was a company I created that aimed to propagate the message of love through it’s products, presentation, and messaging.  The name, theme music, and product designs all came to me vividly, and magically.  The many products, including t-shirts containing messages of Love & Peace, were sweatshop free, were aura cleansed, contained color psychology, and messages and/or images that inspired.  During this phase creativity overflowed to the point that I had boundless energy and ideas.  During this period, I meditated daily for at least an hour. 

Those days were exciting!  Our web and remote boutique setup at concerts, churches, raves, and festivals, ignited every venue.  In the San Antonio, Houston, and Austin areas, we had a cult following.  I would see before my eyes at these events the power of the mind in making visions manifest.

I included my mother, in her late 80’s, in the excitement.  She guarded the money box.  She protected the money, like Pilate’s guards protected the tomb of Jesus.  I can remember how thrilling it was for her to be adored by so many.   

I believe that like changing a radio channel frequency from hardcore rap, to spa music, meditation tuned me into a frequency where all of this potential was accessible to.

Unfortunately, due to having to surrender to life’s circumstances with health, the economy, and mainly having to solely care for my mother after she had a major stroke, Love Electra was dissolved.

But has it really been dissolved?  I feel that with the Life, As Kevy Michaels blog, I am propagating the same message, but doing so digitally, as oppose to doing it with physical products.  Please note that I do not sell anything through my blog.  I don’t directly promote anything either, unless it has positively impacted my life.  And, from those indirect promotions, I received no monetary benefit. 

My goal now, fueled regularly by meditation, is to convey to my audience my life lessons and wisdom, discerned through trials, errors, bad and good choices, successes, triumphs, and failure. 

What I present today are virtues I’ve gained and discovered in my life, with the hopes of that others will be inspired, as well.  Meditation not only makes this possible, it makes it insuppressible.

The videos below may be helpful in explaining meditation and Pure Potentiality clearer than I have.

This Moment

By Kevy Michaels

Today is the best day

…The best day, of my life

Yesterday has already served me

Tomorrow has yet to arrive

I cleared away all those worries

Cause worries are good for no one

So goodbye to all of the problems

Your time has come;

Now it’s already gone

I going to start today anew

Only happiness will carry me through

I’m going to do what I can do

To celebrate this moment

Chorus

 I’ll celebrate this moment

The one in the palm in of my hands

There is beauty in the joy of this moment

But soon it won’t be here

So I’ll rejoice…..

While this moment is here

And I won’t miss it when….

When it disappears

I will celebrate this moment

While it is here…

While it is here…

=========================

Many things may happen

It won’t steal joy from me

This moment has a smile on my face

In this joy, is where I’m meant to be

Tomorrow is wasting my time

…Got no time to spare anyway

So I’ll deal with tomorrow

After making the best of today

I going to start today anew

Only happiness will carry me through

I’m going to do all that I can do

To celebrate this moment

====================

Chorus

 So I’ll celebrate this moment

The one in the palm in of my hands

There is beauty in the joy of this moment

But soon it won’t be here

So I’ll rejoice…..

While this moment is here

And I won’t miss it when….

When it disappears

Cause I will celebrate this moment

While it is here…

While it is here…
